The battery in the security remote for V's car died.

Without the battery, the remote won't disarm the security system (which automatically re-arms itself). Without the security system disarmed, the car won't start. Without starting, the car won't drive. Without the capability of driving the car, I'm grounded but for the feet and the bus and the kindness of local associates for the nonce.

It's the little things in life that make you appreciate the big things.

(The battery waited to die until I was home and not going anywhere other than work for just a bit.)
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
